One person was killed in a roll-over crash
An elderly man was killed in a single vehicle crash Friday night in Fayette County. Sheriff Vernon Stanforth says the mishap occurred at 7:54pm on U.S. Route 22 near the intersection of Jasper-Coil Road.
71-year-old Herbert R. Dearth of Sabina was pronounced dead at the scene.
The sheriff reports that Dearth was driving westbound when he lost control of the vehicle when he hit an embankment and overturned, partially ejecting him from the vehicle.
